UYBC has currently raised £4384 following a big boost to the project from the 24 hour Rowathon in York train station. We powered through and even got some help from members of the public (mainly brides-to-be) finally completing 428,834m and raising £892.40 towards our £6,000 target! One day to go, please share our project on social media and help us reach our goal! Thank you everyone x

Hello Hello!
Thank you to everyone that has donated so far and to all the helpers as well :) We are well on our way towards our target but the last 7 days are crucial, so lets all come together for this last push. Power 10!
We have been a little quiet on here due to race season hotting up, with each squad in finals at Nottingham City regatta, 4 wins at Durham regatta and the Senior Women qualifying in the academic eights category at Henley Women's regatta!
We are now back in York after a successful Regatta season and looking to promote the club into next year. Off the back of a successful 12 hour erg the club will now aim to complete a 24 hour erg (rowathon!!) in York train station!
If you have already donated please share the page on your facebook or as an email. If you are a helper please send an email to 10 friends, family or work colleagues asking for their support.
The more people we reach the more likely we are to get our target... you never know who might be interested and every little helps.

Thank you everyone that has donated so far! The erg went fantastically and as a club we ended up completing 341km smashing our original target of 270km. We had so many club members participate on the day and fantastic support from everyone! The cake sale was a great success raising more than £150 to be split between the project and York RAG.
Please get your sponsorship in asap and watch this space for more events and updates from UYBC!
